This comprehensive trek gives you the grand tour of the famous and stunning Everest region. If you are up for an adventure and a challenge, then join us for this strenuous trek to Gokyo Lake and over Cho La Pass, leading into the Khumbu/Everest valley above Lobuche. The trail continues up to Kalapattar and then back to Lukla via Tengboche and Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Everest region.
On the trek, you will reach three very impressive vantage points: Gokyo Peak at 5,321m, Cho La Pass at 5,330m and finally Kalapattar at 5,643 m. All three vantage points will, aside from rewarding you with an incomparable sense of achievement, provide you with fantastic views and mountain landscapes to remember for a lifetime.
With eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountain vistas. Trekking in the Everest area is an awesome experience, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colourful festivals and monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery and the legend lives on in the Khumbu region.
Strenuous trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenery, including four of the world's eight highest peaks: Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m) and Mt. Everest (8,850m). Breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but culturally vibrant Sherpa-way-of-life, famous for their mountaineering skills.
The itinerary provided (see the next tab) is a suggested outline which covers all highlights of the Khumbu region and the most visited places. You will be overnighting in guesthouses and we will follow a proper acclimatization process, as safety remains our top priority.
If you are able to walk up to 8 hours a day, you can do this trek. If in doubt, we recommend adding a porter upon checking out. One porter can carry up to 30 kgs and can thus be shared between two people.
